Crumbling Ecologies Opens at Craft Victoria!

I was thrilled and overwhelmed by the floods of people that came to the opening of Crumbling Ecologies at Craft Victoria. 

The exhibition was opened by Grace Cochrane, former senior curator from the Powerhouse Museum Sydney. Grace gave insight into the unfolding story behind the works. To read Grace's Speech click here- http://www.crumblingecologies.blogspot.com.au/p/speech-notes-by-grace-cochrane.html

It was great getting to see all of the makers from the project come together for the opening and finally get to meet!

All of Melbourne's art school community of movers and shakers filled the space with lively debate about the ongoing issues the work raises....

Getting down and dirty... taking a closer look... and selecting a few to take home.

I visited the work today at Craft Victoria and was delighted to see that lots of the leaves have been collected and taken home by the audience. Its exciting to see the work evolving and taking on a new life as it reaches out to the community. If you happen to have taken some leaves, please email us an image of where your lives have found their home in your life - jasminetargett (at) hotmail (dot) com
